Elevate My Soul

Another day setting in my life and I'm finally feeling better. I've had bad
luck lately with health. If it wasn't migraines or tension headaches, it was
killer colds or stomach viruses. And I don't even want to go into the stress
caused by the rising mound of medical bills... So it's a good day when all I
have is a headache that I rid myself of by midday with medication. The
stomach virus I've had seems to be waning and my appetite is returning

I'm going to revel in this day, quietly.

Just Breathe...

So all of us need help every once in a while, even the strongest of us. And I am far from the strongest. I've always been the advocate for under-medicating mental health. But there comes a time in everyone's life when they have to accept that they may no longer be able to control their emotions themselves.

So I'm excepting this helping hand... and now I feel I can finally breathe again.

Passionate One

Before you all shake your heads at me in disbelief that I already missed a day of post, know this:
1) I did say I would post at least twice a week - not once a day...
2) I nearly posted last night until I was attacked by an eville stomach ache that is still plaguing me.
3) What do you care anyhow??? :P

Anywho, nothing new to really update. The title of this post is perhaps a little abstract. I know I've written about my sun sign before in my posts, but I wanted to take the time to touch on a certain aspect of Scorpios: passion. Now before you run to the FCC to tell on me, hear me out, dude. Passion isn't always about white-hot sex. Passion can also be about life and everything in it. But the passion I speak of is the passion that exists when a Scorpio is emotionally affected by something. Ever known someone who had massive mood swings, but was extrememly focused and organized? Someone who could argue a point into the ground and then break into tears the moment they win the debate? Prolly a Scorp...

Point is: Emotionally, we Scorpios are screwed (at least the women and most of the men). We invest so much of our life energy in ensuring the "right" things happen in situations that when something doesn't (or even does), it breaks us down. So step lightly around those November babies you know when it comes to passion - they will out shine even the most determined Taurus.

Candlebright in the Window

Well, another year gone... and I've decided it's high time I updated this journal. For those who read it (hi, you two!), don't freak - and don't expect much. But I thought I might as well be cliche and document my new year's resolutions for 2005.

  1. Lose weight. (This is a cop-out for most people - but as I am comfortable with how I am now, I would just like to lose it for the pride of it...)
  2. Update my journal at least twice a week. (We all know how that one's gonna go...)
  3. Be more aware of my tone before speaking. (A very recent development, complicated by excess emotional stress... )
  4. Save, save, save... and get out of debt as much as possible... (very important!)
  5. Grow a tougher skin at work. (Needed to sort out some current issues not to be mentioned.)

So there you have it - first entry of the new year. More interesting and lovely stuff to come. I'll have loads of great stories to tell, I'm sure. Have a happy 2005!
